Narges Mohammadi | Winner of the RM Young Blood Award 2020


During a “covid-proof” RM Young Blood Award Ceremony, Barbara Bos, Head of Exhibitions at Museum Voorlinden, announced that Narges Mohammadi (KABK, The Hague) has become the recipient of the 2020 RM Young Blood Award! Winning the RM Young Blood Award means that the work by Mohammadi will be placed in the permanent collection of Museum Voorlinden – Congratulations Narges!

“Especially in a time of distance in which contrasts become much more visible and tangible, Narges Mohammadi knows how to connect people through her autobiographical work. Her work moves the viewer directly, because it touches on the essence of being human for better or for worse.”

– Barbara Bos | Head of Exhibitions at Museum Voorlinden

Narges Mohammadi is an artist, curator and DJ and is currently based in The Hague (NL). She graduated the BA Modern and Contemporary Art History from Utrecht University in 2018 and completed her BA Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Arts The Hague. Her artistic practice stems from a position of in-betweenness – a space embedded within separated cultural histories.

In her artistic practice she makes works that embody long lost memories, which she translates into immersive installations and sculptures. Her works can be characterized by a play with fragrances, colors, symbols and habits of different cultural heritages. By using simple and widely accessible materials in atmospheres that have seemingly outgrown them, she allows my different senses of home to come together.
